Elder flower beauty cream

From Linda Bates.

The rugosa rose is one of Culpeppers medicinal herbs and we make rosehips tincture with the seed pods or hips. This cream makes a great gift for birthdays and Christmas. Use the herbs freshly picked and really squeeze the plant matter through the sieve to get every drop of goodness from those herbs.

Coriander pesto

From Sue Giles.

Pesto is a fabulous way of incorporating the flavour and benefit of herbs into your diet. It is simple and easy to make, and may be frozen for use at a later time. This recipe is sometimes known as “Poor Man’s Chelation” because of the wonderful detoxifying properties of the coriander. It can be useful in helping to remove difficult toxins such as heavy metals from the system.

Warming chai

From Sue Giles.

Be adventurous and make your own chai—it is easy to do, and can be stored in a thermos to enjoy later in the day. Chai is a wonderful warming drink to enjoy in the winter months, and a great way to add the benefits of the warming spices to your winter regime. Ginger is a warming circulatory stimulant, as well as having immune stimulating properties, and having a beneficial effect on the digestive system.
